Developer wanted for Kirkgate

Leeds Council chiefs are seeking a developer to transform the George Street frontage of the city's Kirkgate indoor market.

They want the frontage of the market redeveloped as it will face the new hundred and £50m Victoria Gate centre which will include the city's first John Lewis store.

Construction work on Victoria Gate is due to start next month with it opening in 2016. The market frontage scheme is in addition to the £12m improvement plan for the market which is expected to get the go-ahead next month.
